Don’t: A Woman’s Word  is a searing memoir of child abuse and incest. It is a life changing narrative that demands children be protected from exploitation and survivors get the help they need.


Beyond Don’t: Dreaming Past the Dark is Elly’s second autobiography addresses the multi-layered reality of child sexual abuse. In the process, she candidly shares her life, her struggles and her insights. She writes about the reactions she has encountered since telling her story: from support and admiration to disbelief and disdain. She reflects on her family and in particular her relationship with her mother. And by lending once again her unwavering voice to speak the truth, she responds powerfully to the backlash against survivors.
